Coyote drags 2-year-old girl at cemetery

CYPRESS, Calif. – A 2-year-old girl is recovering after she was bitten and dragged by a coyote at a Southern California cemetery.

The Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/1baABM7 ) reported Klarissa Barrera, of Long Beach, was given a rabies shot and treated for a 2 1/2-inch gash on her calf.

She was attacked 10 feet from her mother Thursday as the family visited a relative’s grave at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Cypress.

Michelle Luper said the coyote bit her daughter on the back and dragged her toward some bushes. Luper said she screamed and lunged, and the coyote let go.

State wildfire officials later shot and killed three coyotes at the cemetery.

Experts said coyote attacks on people are rare and this was the first reported in Orange County this year.
